Key to having smart citizen in the field of education: Arayik Harutyunyan took part in "Smart Citizen" panel discussion

YEREVAN, 17 OCTOBER, ARMENPRESS. Any artificial intelligence tool can make a person both smart and crazy.

Prime Minister's Chief of Staff Arayik Harutyunyan expressed such a point of view during the panel discussion under the title "Smart Citizen" organized within the framework of the "Silicon Mountains" conference.

“Artificial intelligence is another tool for solving various situations. Any such tool can make a person both smart and crazy. If previously a large amount of information was transmitted as a source, now we must teach how to use information sources correctly,” Harutyunyan said.

During the discussion of the topic “Smart Citizen,” Harutyunyan noted that a “digital” citizen and a “smart” citizen are different things. According to him, the secret of a “smart” citizen is in the development of the education sector.

Now the tools that enable a “smart” citizen to progress and develop the society have become digital. All the secrets of a “smart” citizen are in the education system,” Harutyunyan noted.
